The Ubiquiti Bullet 2HP currently requires "activation." However, the manufacturer discontinued it a long time ago and stopped issuing any new firmware for it. It is thus no longer a product being deployed commercially, by ISPs who would pay to license software for it, but rather an orphan - just like an older Linksys router. (The same is true of the Picostation 2HP, which uses the same circuit board but with a smaller case and an SMA connector rather than an N connector.) DD-WRT developers: would you consider removing this model from your list of products requiring an activation fee, so that users who obtain these radios secondhand can get a current, stable, secure OS for them and amateur radio operators can use them as mesh nodes? Otherwise, they will most likely wind up in the landfill. It would be a service to the environment to do this.
